As soon as the Korean trend of Dalgona coffee went viral, our feeds were raided by people's attempts at that frothy treat made with whipped coffee and chilled milk. While some argued that this is how a lot of Indians have consumed coffee since time immemorial, and that 'Dalgona' was only a fresh new take on the age-old 'whisked coffee' and not a novel trend; some were just too happy to bask in the new trend, without getting in the whole discussion of 'who-did-it-first'. Either way we were reminded of how much we loved our dear coffee and how prompt are we to experiment with our cup of Joe.
